No baby yet! Will this be my last update before Liam? I ask myself that every day now........
Total weight gain: Ok, so the weight. Throughout my pregnancy, I never once had a doctor/midwife say a single thing to me about it. Not a peep. My weight gain has been pretty average for my size, (At this point I think it's about 40 pounds...maybe a tad above the 'recommended' amount) and it's not something I ever, ever worried about. I went in for my 39 week appt. and saw a nurse I hadn't seen before. She said... 'looks like you gained two pounds this week...how's your diet?' What I wanted to say was... Lady, don't you know that sometime next week, I'll be LOSING about 25 pounds in a day!? But I didn't. I just smiled and told her that my diet was fine.
Stretch Marks: Notta one! I am so thankful.
Maternity clothes? Actually in this photo, I was able to cram myself into a non-maternity shirt! Amazingly!
Sleep: Still sleeping quite well, other than a few bouts of 'morning' insomnia. Keith leaves for work at a God-awful hour, (like, 5am. vomit.) and he always wakes me for a good-bye kiss. Usually I fall riiight back to sleep, but this week I have been not able to! Maybe just excitement... ??
Best moment this week: This week has been very good overall...I feel like Keith and I are both very relaxed and just enjoying our last bit of time as a twosome!
Miss Anything? Just the usual... my cute jeans, being comfortable, and margaritas :)
Movement: It's so uncomfortable at this point. I mean, I know that I will dearly miss it when he's outside the womb, but at the same time I am ready to eat without getting jabbed every ten seconds!
Food cravings: Nothing major and I have to say, when you are this pregnant, your appetite decreases significantly. I cannot fit nearly as much food in there as I used to be able to!
Anything making you queasy or sick: aside from the thought of giving birth?
Gender: Oh Boy!
Labor Signs: Sunday night late, I started having some intense pains... A few contractions, but mostly just bad cramping. It even woke me up very early Monday morning, so I was thinking....maybe this is the start of something...?? I had my 39 week appt. Monday and had my cervix checked...barely dilated! At all! She said the outside of my cervix was opened just a little, but that little man seemed 'very comfortable' in there. NOT what you want to hear when you're this uncomfortable!!
Symptoms: Feet still swell almost every day, & I've just this week started to get a very annoying backache.
Belly Button in or out? outeroo
Wedding rings on or off? off! My hands still really aren't that swollen, but I don't want to take any chances.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I am happy and relaxed! Everything is done & I am just enjoying my last bit of 'free time' to do whatever my heart desires. I actually found myself wondering what to do this morning...I've had a 'to-do' list for so long that now that I don't it's like idk what to do with my time! I ended up cleaning my already very clean house. I had a huge burst of energy and even 're-organized' the magnets on the fridge. Yep. I'm that type of person.
Looking forward to: I am quite looking forward to having my body back & feeling like 'me' again!
Showing: The basketball is very hard to hide :)
